Army Tin Lid

#1
Can somebody help me solve an argument. The old Army skid lid issued through the eigties and before, was it an 1157 issue or was it just the spider and the helmet was issued on your webbing card?

In the RAC the lid was G1098 IIRC.

I seem to remember the spider was an 1157 issue and the lid a unit issue. The spider went with me on posting but I handed the helmet in and got a new one at the other end.

Differant units, differant rules!

In the RAOC - Complete Helmet [green liner (like a headover) sized headband, spider, helmet, chin strap, & scrim net] issued with webbing from G1098 store. (however some earler helmets were still issued with black one-piece liners)

It has been bothering me for years whether my tin hat was issued on my 1157 or 1033 - thanks for solving the conundrum and improving my sleep pattern :wink:

Is it possible to get a mild form of PSTD from worrying about 1033's :?

Only if you have lost the contents.

Memories of binos, side-pocket of bergen and a wide expanse of SPTA.....

This was the case in my unit as well.
